That is the ultimate question each person will eventually come to ask themselves somewhere along the line.
But the answer is more difficult to come by. Its going to be a unique answer as well, per the individual asking the question. Everyone came here (and
continues to return) for different reasons, though some may be very similar to one another.
I personally echo your sentiment: what is the point if its all unreal? And for me as well, Im not sure what compelled me to come here, but I have some
Ultimately I think my personal presence comes to down a desire to co-build a masterpiece, akin to creating a true work of art and beauty, using
strange materials and odd methods, which I think epitomizes what the universe is made of and its functional laws. That, I think, is the most plausible
explanation for why I started to play this game, so to speak.
More recently, as in the past several thousands or tens of thousand years, I have a stronger feeling that I have continued to return, ie incarnate,
here on Earth to recapture something that was present long ago, a powerful potential, but never reached its ultimate expression and fell apart too
soon, of course due to human error. That old place with that potential I like to call Atlantis, whether the name technically would fit or not, which
is always debatable.
I think America was the best shot at recapturing that old potential, and truly creating an interactive, global work of both abstract and concrete art
in the form of both spirit and material. I feel I was here since the beginning, the revolutionary war, and most recently WW2. But seeing how things
have progressed, and seeing what has manifested which can only be a result of the true heart desires of a people, I sense that, once again, Im riding
a sinking ship on a course to rock bottom. The deja vu is subtle, but present.
Ive thought about it a long time, and Im fairly convinced that the above is true for me. Knowing that, I plan to not return after this particular life
is over to this place. I think the art project, as it were, has utterly failed, and is beyond redemption at this point in time.
For me, its time to find a new canvas with new artists to co-create with. Coming to that decision has probably taken many, many lifetimes. Ive come to
accept the world is what it is: the manifest will of the people, and that its not what I desire now, in the past, or ever will, and that its time to
Ill chalk the lifetimes on this planet up to being learning experiences.
Unfortunately I nor anyone else can directly guide you to find YOUR reason for being here. But I do hope by giving my own interpretation and thoughts
of why I am here, it will indirectly help you along as well.
